Abstract:

This document presents the results of a Stakeholder Analysis of Canadian Forces CF Counter Improvised Explosive Device IED training courses. The Stakeholder Analysis was used to inform the design, development and evaluation of an Intelligent Tutoring System ITS for the IED Disposal IEDD Operator Course. One of the most challenging activities for a distance education facilitator is to be responsive to student needs and customize the learning experience to the students individual learning style, help socialize the student to the institution, and keep the learner engaged in spite of the isolated environment. To achieve these goals, Defence Research and Development Canada DRDC - Toronto has initiated an Applied Research Project ARP to investigate mechanisms to improve efficiency and effectiveness for the Canadian Forces CF distance learning capability. In order to support these goals, a Requirement and Stakeholder Analysis for the CF Counter-IED Training Courses was undertaken by CAE Professional Services CAE PS to investigate the requirements of stakeholders of the CF IEDD Operator Course for the development of adaptive learning technology integration and validation plans. Given the high failure rate in the existing IEDD Operator Course, problematic aspects of the course was one of the foci of the Stakeholder Analysis. The discussion with stakeholders focused, in part, on the feasibility of demonstrating the capability of intelligent tutoring technology within the IEDD Operator Course. The report presents the results of the Stakeholder Analysis interviews conducted between the 22nd January 2010 and the 23rd February 2010, and describes the recommendations for implementing adaptive learning and intelligent tutoring technologies into a suitable CF distance-learning course.
